Hello all- my son has central auditory processing issues but has done well at our local highly rated community college (Miracosta), without accomodations, although he has an IEP and is eligible for them. He has taken a slightly lower academic load but I believe he has about a low B average. He wants to transfer to a UC or CSU- any recommendations as to which ones have best support? Also any recommended private schools in CA? He should be eligible for financial aid as I am a low income single parent.
His disability presents in all areas reading/writing/math- he struggles with both but is ambitious and works hard. He has learned coping and social strategies. He is an excellent athlete and would like to be on a soccer or track team in college as well. He is a pro paintballer as well but is moving away from that.
He has talked about career options ranging from teaching other students with LD, firefighting, landscaping or having his own business. I could also see him as an excellent PE teacher.
He has not taken SAT and did not do too well on the PSAT.
I think he is ready to try living away from home. He's traveled extensively in the US and in Europe with paintball.
Any help appreciated.
